For anyone who lived through the Eighties, or for anyone who wishes they had, this book is a must. A self-confessed obsessive of Eighties’ culture and a mine of useless trivia on the decade (and with an uncanny knack of bumping into celebrities!), no one is better placed than Sarah Lewis to take you back to a time when shoulder pads were big, and hair was even bigger. Including interviews with Eighties’ favourites like Hazell Dean and Owen Paul, My Eighties offers a nostalgic but realistic visit to a decade of extremes. Taking you from the school disco to night clubbing, from Grange Hill to one hit wonders, the book details some of the author’s favourite memories of the Eighties, and will inspire you to recall your own. My Eighties is available as an ebook and in paperback here.
My Eighties was in the Top 4, at various times throughout December ’14 and January ’15, in the Entertainment Biography and Music categories. In November ’15 it reached number 1 in both categories. My Eighties has also received some great Amazon reviews, extracts of which include the following:
“If you were around in the 80’s you’ll love this book. The music, the fashion, the Yardley Gold… it’s all here. The one hit wonders section really reminded me of some cracking songs I’d forgotten all about.”
“Loved being transported back to the eighties by this book; it brought back so many memories that I’d long forgotten!”
The follow-up to My Eighties, entitled Your Eighties, was released in November via Amazon.
